for providing this information.
After drawing on the marakihau, we started the blocking process, using a flat
chisel, number 50 which is 50mm (2 1/2 to 3 inches). This took about 10 hours,
followed by another 10 hours using an adze and finally finishing off with 50
hours using an arbourtec. This saved hours of adzeing and chiselling!
as you can take it off,
but not put it back!
The log was then moved to the workshop. It took 8 people to lift it and now weighed in at about 250 kilos (quarter of a tonne).
